Steven drove the Wilkins TQ to a third place finish.
Here is a look at the former #85. The new driver ran it hard all night and finished very well!
This was a heck of a race! Steven ended up second after a close and exciting battle.
Race winner Rob Kohler and Steven meet in victory circle after the race. Steven caught Rob in the last corners of the last lap, and put the bumper to his car. Things got a wild, but Rob held on in a wild, fun finish.
I had to do a little body work to the Wilkins #11!
Check out the left front wheel: that powerful little car can pull it off the ground at the start/finish line.
We put it together and Steven parked it in victory circle for the first time in a TQ.
Gary Gimmler was on hand to help coach our driver to find a little extra speed. It worked!

Thanks to our bud Louis Brashear for giving Steven a day of practice in a dirt sprint! He took it out several times and logged a ton of laps. This was his first time in a wingless, dirt sprintcar. Even though this was a vintage car, it has plenty of punch for this track.
Finishing our work at Dean Bartholomew's shop the night before the race.
